NEW YORK (WABC) -- If you were a fan of the #PizzaRat social media firestorm, get ready for part two. Because every sequel needs a sidekick.

A new video taken by Jonathen Liu at Union Square Thursday night and posted on Instagram shows New York City's favorite scavenger battling a new nemesis for a slice of the Big Apple's most well-known delicacy.

The tug-of-war ends with a clear victor, though it remains to be seen which of the rats, if either, is the original Pizza Rat.

Take another look at the first video, taken by Matt Little at the First Avenue L train station in the East Village, and see if you can notice any similarities.
